Spain: Eduardo Alvarez's Quiniela

This column couldn't possibly be accused of hyperbole or exaggeration if we say that the week has been simply catastrophic. On Monday, Leslie Nielsen died. On Wednesday and Thursday, the Spanish teams playing for the Europa League did terribly, with the only exception being Villarreal. And to make matters worse, the joint Iberian candidacy to organise the 2018 World Cup lost to Russia. I'm pretty sure that my selective mind is eliminating some other disaster that happened during this week that would make me feel even more depressed, but all that was already enough, right?

Well, the upcoming Quiniela looks as challenging as keeping Jose Mourinho hiding on his bench for a full match, so let's start. As usual, it's '1' for a home win, 'X' for a draw and '2' for an away win.

some of my closest friends from back home are in a traveling juggling show, mostly in ren fests (i know i know). they introduced us out at the charlotte festival and we all had dinner and beer. both of which are good.
